Welcome to Lion’s Roar Dharma Center

Buddhist teachings at Lion’s Roar are especially designed for people with daily work, school and family commitments. As 21st Century Buddhists we promote and share basic human values and work through challenges and relationships openly. We live the concepts of compassion, tolerance, self-discipline and interdependence in order to achieve happiness and overcome suffering. We want to help people make the Lion Roar. We believe it is possible through practice and realization, no matter what one’s life circumstances. We aim to create an open and just society for everyone.


Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who has contributed to our dream of a new Dharma Center by providing funds, practices and prayers! We are truly grateful for the outpouring of support! Our offer on a property that will be a perfect home for our Dharma Center has been accepted! We need to raise $250,000! So far we have $185,786; less than $65,000 is needed to reach our goal! To help us realize our dream, please click on www.lionsroardharmacenter.org/donate/.
